Lassiez faire

?
My friend Bill Wilson said "Let go and let G-d," that is a pretty damn good idea.


I am currently editing clips from the Morehouse's Graduation so LOOK OUT! Highest honors to Brother Kyle for completing his degree With honors And in 4our years.


Sara just reminded me of a website: Grouphug.us
the site was better before they added the "Hug or Shrug" feature, it reminds me to much of hot or not.....
It will make you feel better about any situation you face; Grouphug.us reminds you that things could be worse

Okay Okay Okay

?
Economy.
I hear back about my final student loan tuesday. At this point i've earned enough to study and live in dc, but not enough to eat, drink, chill, pay bills, drive, buy dog food, to live.
My loan officer says "well you know in these times its nearly impossible to get a loan,-"Yo newsflash Jon, you should keep those comments to yourself"-- but I have hope that this will work out. I also have plans "F" and "G" and then i'm back to P7.
Why, in a country known for it's easy access to opportunity, a country whose average IQ drops with the premier of every new reality show, is it so hard to obtain education?
I have a better chance of getting a house and a car. Wait i did just bought a car! and it cost less Before financing than my education.
I hate to sound old fashion but i remember the good ole days when getting into a good school, was the hard part...

Maaaaaan

?
i thought singles got back $600 bucks from the stimulus package, i just got mine and its only $300 bucks! What is that?! Less than a third of what i got back in my return, A freakin bill thats what it is. How am i gonna stimulate the economy by paying off debt? (hint: that is a rhetorical question, but the answer is I CAN'T)
Perhaps some...maybe super young adults (17-20), college kids or just anyone with zero "real responsibility...." will stimulate the economy by blowing their 300bills on a cloths, pot, beer, cigs, and other random junk. Cool!
Well its better than nothing.

Langston Understands

?

i just heard back from Georgetown about my financial aid: $0


They regretfully tell me to go to a private lender...they know what most people know, the housing market crash/lendee crash/ high foreclosure rate means THERE ARE NO MORE LOANS

i've never felt so numb, sober.



What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?


P7 backwards to see the sky

Can't Sleep Clowns will eat Me

?
I've been going out a lot lately, partly due to the fact that I am leaving Atlanta soon and I am trying to "bask in the ambiance." But maybe also to distract from the overall scheme of things:
I AM MOVING ACROSS COUNTRY IN TWO WEEKS WITH NO PLACE TO LIVE, NO MONEY, and A Dog
--- Just an acceptance letter (to Georgetown) in my hand and the little sanity i have left.
little nervous....
...no, i am freaking out


buuuuut i'd much rather be worried about lets say, Georgetown, than who is seeing who, and who sleeping with who and isn't suppose to know and finding out the ex is the boss of yadda yadda yadda "Ya Trick Yaa!" (...i still can't believe a 17 year old became a millionaire off of that song)

I almost don't want to leave Atlanta this time its not that bad...wow, i said that?

Atlanta people are concerned, it seems, mostly with chilling, getting by and Drama. Chilling cause its easy (i've never met so many people taking the 7 plus year college route..and still go straight thru...but hey why not?), Getting By, because the economy is ROUGH right now on everyone but esp my generation, those with little wealth and a O' LOTTA debt! and the Drama because its a cheap easy way to give people that "i'm important" feeling. And its temporary if need be, so it a great way to bring excitement to an otherwise boring life.
I like the idea of just minding my own business, loving all no matter what (yes, even if you don't like, or agree with them), and (my fav) getting a meaningful life!


I can't stay in a place where I DO NOT GROW:
I think working in a restaurant again was a good and bad idea, good because I've met a lot of kick ass people. BAD, because i've meet a lot of selfish, IGNORANT, greedy, DUMB, drama filled self righteous (mainly Buckhead) people that make me understand why this world is headed for self destruction. "Lay down with Dogs, and you'll Wake up with Fleas,"---Ben Franklin.


The complacent, the number of people who concentrate on "Just Being" gives me chill bumps. So i gotta jet cause whatever game was playing when i got here wasn't the game I got tickets for.


No to spending time/money getting a degree in order to "serve" people the rest of ones life, and i am not, and will never knock anyone who does so (or exotic dancers), it is good money, it does buy houses, and cars. But not fucking happiness,
I'd rather be dead broke on the side of the road during legally pro-bono work, or anything GOOD for people, and happy, than, waste away the talent, and the intellect that i worked so hard to obtain.

In D.C. i feel like everyone serves some kind of significant purpose to the overall scheme of things, and stats don't lie, the DC area (MoCo) is about 60% smarter than the overall Atlanta area. Meaning 9 out of 10 people i run in to will be able to carry on a decent conversation, compared to the 3 to 10 ratio in the "Dirty South" My genes are getting wet just thinking about all the "brain-EE-acts"

i'm rambling.....six hours of sleep to 48 hours of Go will do that to you.....where's the nyquil?.....

not gonna proof read

and good night
